the sun times and "the sun," said theresa may botched the brexit talks with temp u saying she left them with all the cards. he also offered three fold advice saying the uk should sue the eu, not pay the bill and to walk away from negotiations all together if they don't get everything they want. >> what do you think went wrong for her? >> i think that uk allowed the european union to have all the cards. i had mentioned to theresa may that you gotta build up your, your ammunition. they didn't give the european union anything to lose. i'm sure that you could have built up a big advantage for your side, and negotiated from strength. >> she said, mr.%, that you suggested she sue the eu. how would that work, do you think >> what i would do for those
2:05 am
mistakes by the eu, that cost the uk a lot of money and a lot of harm, i would have put that on the table. and whether it was in the form of litigation or the form of a request. well, i were them i wouldn't pay $50 billion. that's a big number. if they don't get what they want, i would walk away, yes i would walkway. if you don't get the deal you want, a fair deal you walk away. >> joining us live now from london, matt bradley. we've been talking about the last hour or so some things we can expect from the president's visit to turk ahead of all the pomp and circumstance. i'm sure he'll see over the next 24 hours or so. talk us through the president's week ahead. >> reporter: well, already you mentioned those comments about meghan markle, the president calling her nasty. he seemed to already be playing off those comments just as he landed. he tweeted from the airplane
2:06 am
that the current sitting mayor of london with whom the president has had a years long tit-for-tat string of insults he called him nasty and a stone called loser. the mayor called donald trump a 20th century fascist. the president has landed at winfield house. that's the uggs ambassador's residence in regions park here in london. from there the president will be coming here to buckingham palace where he'll meet with the queen and son and camela parker-bowls and then they will head to westminster abby and then a nasty state dinner. we can expect a first taste of some of our protest. >> for the president's last visit, we certainly saw some protests in the streets of the
2:07 am
uk. do we expect some of the same this time around? have you seen any glimpse of that? >> reporter: well, i mean all of central london is lock down. the president won't be taking a carriage ride because of security concerns. we've also seen that baby blimp that's famous, that has been loft above london, baby trump that will be employed once between and we'll see those protests starting right here at buckingham palace tonight and then tomorrow when the president meets with theresa may that's when we're expecting protests not here in london but throughout the country. senior advisor for the president jared kushner is speaking out in a require interview discussing his role in the push for a middle east peace plan. the president's son-in-law hasn't held talk in more than a year with the leadership was
2:08 am
pressed on it. >> do you understand why the palestinians don't trust you? >> look, i'm not here to be trusted. >> you are, frankly. to look at it from their point of view, you got three orthodox jews on the negotiating team. you got the actions you've taken so far moving the u.s. embassy to jerusalem. you cut all aid to the palestinians including hospitals in east jerusalem and you shut down the palestinian diplomat office in washington. i mean can you not see why they might not want to talk to you and that they might not trust you. >> so there's a difference between the palestinian leadership and the palestinian people. >> do you think the palestinian people would be okay with all those things? >> the actions we took is because america's aid is not entitlement. we make certain decisions which we're a sovereign nation and
2:09 am
respect the rights of that sovereign nation we get disrespect the response is not to give you more aid. with regards to the palestinian people, i do believe that they want to have a better life and i do think that they are not -- >> aid has been cut. >> they won't judge anything on trusting me or anybody else. they will judge it on facts. will this be a pathway to a better life. >> jonathan swan will have more coming up. joining us now white house reporter for axios. jared kushner wears a number of hats in this administration. he has trade, the usmca, mideast peace, a liaison between white house and capitol hill. some people say he's running a shadow state department. on these issues, jonathan swan pressed him on you got this sense of defensive from kushner and he wasn't entirely
2:10 am
forthcoming on a number of these topics. >> i give a lot of credit to my colleague jonathan swan. i thought he did a good job of pushing jared kushner on several of these topics. at 38 jared kushner is the most influential family member to a sitting president since robert kennedy jr. we don't normally here from him so often or in a combative manner. that's key. he was defensive on several topics. he also, we saw right then when they were talk about sovereignty he was defensive, driving a wedge between the palestinian leadership and the people. he pressed him on his close relationship with the saudi crown prince and, of course, trying reconcile, trying to see how kushner could reconcile his relationship with him in light
2:11 am
of locking up protesters who say they were tore toured and indiscriminately bombing civilians. >> i would recommend anybody to pick up, if they could at this point or go online to read the "sunday times" on front page, there was a fantastic article on mbz and mbs. let's look ahead to trump's uk visit today. what should we keep an eye out for as british prime minister theresa may makes her official committee end of the week. >> i think that's an important point to make. theresa may is planning on leaving at the end of this week. everything that's discussed during these bilateral talks especially when it comes to potential trade agreement between the u.s. and uk has an asterisk over it because the president will soon be dealing with a totally new prime minister. we saw last year during his trip
2:12 am
to england the president gave an interview with "the sun" which was controversial and did it again this year prior to his trip which i think was really interesting. so he threw support behind boris johnson, which is definitely going to shake some things up. i'm interested to what theresa may might say to that. >> he threw his support behind boris johnson then and threw support behind boris johnson now. weighing in on domestic politics which usually for an american president is a huge no-no. there are new disturbing reports about the gunman in friday's deadly mass shooting in virginia beach. after working as a city engineer for 15 years the 40-year-old man submitted a letter of resignation hours before killing 12 co-workers.
2:13 am
city officials said all he left behind was a resignation letter and a work history that gave no hint of his intentions. friday's shooting was the deadliest in the u.s. since november. armed with two .45 caliber pistols the gunman killed 12 people before being killed in a gun battle with police. as the community, the victims of friday's attack hundreds gathered yesterday near the iconic nep opportune sculpture on veeb for an evangelical service. as somebody who has been on air for many of these mass shootings and you as well it's heartwrenching, disturbing, disappointing, i can't even, you know, come up with the amount much words to describe the feeling you have when you see yet again another mass shooting in this country. just to say that it is the worst mass shooting since november. not since last year or not since ten years ago are 20 years ago
2:14 am
but november. still ahead the white house could be facing a new lawsuit in the wake of the president's new tariffs threat against mexico. we'll bring in danny cevallos for that discussion. >> a flooding emergency in arkansas. in some areas the water reached the top of roof tops. a check of the weather when we come right back. most of us don't know how much data we use.

2:17 am
the u.s. chamber of commerce is considering filing a lawsuit against the white house over the trump administration's latest rounds of tariffs on mexico. or at least the threat. the organization's senior vice president of international affairs told reporters on friday that the group is exploring all openings including legal action. the tariffs if the president were to do it would begin at 5% and increase by five percentage
2:18 am
points each month before reaching 25% on october 1st. there's been concern from investors that tariffs can drain profits while leading to higher prices on goods. and the move by the chamber of commerce reflect as widening divide between pro business group and the president. it staked out ground on immigration as well. on saturday the president tweet when you're the piggy bank nation that foreign countries have been robbing and deceiving for years the word tariff is a beautiful word indeed. we're no longer the foolgs of the past. >> joining us here on set, nbc legal analyst danny cevallos. if they decided to pursue legal action, danny -- i'm over here. >> i got you. i'm saying hello to the audience. >> what could the -- >> i'm one of the fools of the past. >> what could the chamber of commerce's strategy look like? >> it's quite a challenge. the chamber of commerce may show
2:19 am
that companies are suffering a harm from these tariffs. but they may not have enough even to get into date. there are certain powers that are reserved exclusively to the president. a party must have standing. they may not be able to have the courts review this. some things are under the power of executive privilege. such as naming a federal judge. a court would say that's exclusively reserved to the president. as long as the president hasn't exceeded his statutory authority it's likely these tariffs may be valid and possibly unchallengeable. >> it's not just the chamber that's threatening lawsuits other business groups too. this would apply to other groups as well? >> it's always the first analysis a court does whenever there's a challenge to the president's power, whether it's under the constitution or under a particular statute, in this case, for example, if the basis
2:20 am
is nafta or some other treaty then the court will look to whether or not the president has exceeded his powers but before they even reach that inquiry they look to see whether this particular party even has standing to be in court and to challenge this exercise of power. >> this was a pretty divisive thing within the administration, reported last week that robert lighthizer, steven mnuchkin were against these. but the white house counsel said he was on good legal footing. >> look to the statute. look to whether or not the constitution and the statute authorize the president to do this. this is not the first time that the president in past administrations, including, has raised tariffs, raised duties, and private entities have challenged it. private business associations have challenged it. the chamber of commerce has sued inn innumerable times on issues like
2:21 am
this. they need judicial review. the court has power to review things whether a law is constitutional, whether the president has exceeded his or her power, but as a threshold issue, before the court even gets started they have to decide whether or not this may be a power exclusively reserved to the president and the president alone. >> danny cevallos, thanks. good seeing you. let's get a check on your weather now with nbc meteorologist bill karins. >> remember last week we were dealing with tornadoes. it was like endless. we went 18 straight days with at least one tornado reported in the country. we broke that streak over the weekend. for today we'll be dealing with severe weather. may is first for severe weather. high plains will see severe thunderstorms today and then storms will roll to the midwest tomorrow. not today but tomorrow afternoon kansas city airport, st. louis and des moines could have storms. here's your week ahead forecast.

2:31 am
welcome back, everybody. i'm yasmin vossoughian alongside nbc news white house correspondent jeff bennett. it's the bottom of the hour. let's start with the morning's top stories. today marks the start of president trump's three day state visit to the united kingdom. trump is scheduled to meet with british prime minister theresa may tomorrow days before her resignation takes effect on friday. in a major and controversial break from diplomatic norms the president has added his support to the former mayor of london and former foreign affairs secretary boris johnson without making an endorsement just yet. >> well i like him. i have always liked him. i don't know that he is going to
2:32 am
be chosen, but i think he is a very good guy, a very talented person. he's been very positive about me and our country. i know the players. i know the different players. but i think boris would do a very good job. i think he would be excellent. >> president trump says labor party leader jeremy corbyn becomes leader, we may not share intelligence any more. >> we're very good for tuck. what we do for the uk in terms of many things including military. >> intelligence sharing. >> intelligence. >> do you have some qualms about america's sharing stuff -- >> i would have to meet him. i don't know him. but i would certainly -- before i would answer the question i would have to get to know him. >> president trump and the mayor of london are trading jabs this morning after mayor sadiq khan wrote in an op-ed "the observer" it's unbritish to roll out the
2:33 am
red carpet for donald trump. this is a man who tried to complete londoners fears after an attack. denounced as fake news. there's dangers of climate change and now trying to interfere shamelessly in the conservative party leadership race by backing boris johnson because he believes it would enable him to gain an ally in number 10 for his divisive agenda. before boarding marine one the president responded. take a look. >> no i don't think much of him. i think he's a -- he's the twin of de blasio except shorter. >> shortly before landing in london the president sent these tweets writing sadiq khan who has done a terrible job as mayor of london as been foolishly nasty of the visiting president of the united states, by far the most important ally of the uk.
2:34 am
he's a stone cold loser. in a second tweet trump goes on to misspell khan's name. khan reminds me of de blasio who has also done a terrible job. i look forward to being a great friend to the united kingdom and look very much forward to my visit. khan is 5'6" which is 11 inches shorter than de blasio. a spokesperson for khan said this is much more serious than childish insulteds. donald trump is the most egregious example of a growing far-right threat around the globe. secretary of state mike pompeo is reportedly offering a stark outlook on the potential of the trump administration's middle east peace plan. according to "the washington post," which obtained an audio recording of a private meeting
2:35 am
between pompeo and jewish leaders the secretary of state said one might argue that the plan is unexecutable and it might not gain traction. the post says in the recording pompeo expresses hope that the plan is not dismissed right off the bat saying this, it may be rejected, could be in the end. folks will say it's not ploorj, doesn't work for me. it has two goods things. pompeo goes on to ask, the big question is can we get enough space that we can have a real conversation about how to build this out? nbc news has not reviewed the audio recording. the secretary's remarks are the most straightforward about the president's deal of the century in his words. which the president himself has touted as not difficult to accomplish. during an interview on "meet the press" acting white house chief of staff mick mulvaney was asked about a report the white
2:36 am
house ask the "uss john s. mccain" be moved out of sight during the president's japan. the mull pull said the request was probably made by the president's advance team and the request was not unreasonable. >> you're confident it was nobody in the white house or an advance person that made the request to a navy to couch the "uss john s. mccain"? >> no i believe it was probably somebody on the advance team. >> on your team. any consequences for this? >> i'll answer your question. an advance team 100 of people. you've been overseas. the fact that some 23 or 24-year-old person on the advance team went to that sight and said oh, my goodness there's the john mccain, maybe that's not the best backdrop can someone look into moving it. that's not an unreasonable thing to ask. >> it's not. >> will somebody get fired for this? no. >> just as president trump pushes new trade measures to
2:37 am
punish mexico, kevin hasset who had a lead role in drfting the president's immigration policy is the latest departure. the president added this. his talented replacement will be named as soon ace get back to the u.s.. >> joining us now is white house reporter for axios. kevin hasset was a good ambassador for this white house. he's smart. easy to work with. a straight shooter which can't be said for a lot of people in the trump administration. so how do you think his departure is going impact not just this white house but trade war between the u.s. and various countries. >> that's exactly it. his departure comes at a time where this administration is waging different trade wars with several different countries. with china and with mexico, which, of course, with the tariffs that the president announced last week are set to
2:38 am
take effect on june 10th. it's a very tumultuous time for him to be leaving. your point is right on kevin hasset being a good defender of this administration. he's been one of almost few figures in top leadership roles at the white house who haven't been controversial or big in the media. it will be interesting to see who replaces him especially at a time of such importance at an economic standpoint. >> how we might see the political spat between london's mayor sadiq khan and. trump play out over the next three days or so while the president is in the uk? this has been an ongoing spat dating all the way back to the terror attacks that took place in london. >> right. i don't see it coming down at all. of course the president sent some pretty aggressive tweets before even touching down for his visit in the united kingdom this week.
2:39 am
so, i mean, of course, the mayor of london has also said some pretty aggressive thing as well, not as colorful as president trump has on twitter. last year when the president visited the mayor the mayor greeted these protesters allowing that blimp of this president depicted as a baby in diapers to fly over the city hurricane disvisit. the blimp's creator said that the mayor has allowed for the blimp to fly again this time around. so it's been a very -- they've been at each other's heads for some time and i don't think that will slow down at all. >> thanks for your time this morning. still ahead much more of jared kushner speaking out in a rare interview. jonathan swan will join us to discuss his sometimes contentious sit down with the presidentialed a ricer. several states are one water following an unending wave of severe weather. bill karins will have the latest own when some relief might be

2:44 am
>> was it racist? >> i wasn't involved in that. >> i know you weren't. was it racist? >> look, i know who the president is and i've not seen anything in him that's racist. so, again i was not involved in that. >> did you wish he didn't do that? >> like i said i wasn't involved in that. that was a long time ago. >> we'll have more with jonathan swan on his sit down with kushner in just a few minutes. let's get a check now on the severe flooding in parts of the country with nbc meteorologist bill karins. >> i know you were. >> keep going. >> pine bluff, arkansas saw the river go up. we'll show you one town after another as the crest moved from oklahoma into arkansas. it was decent weather this weekend but so much water heading downstream. . it is falling in areas from

trade relations but now u.s. and mexico relations and u.s.-europe relations. president trump just arrived in the uk today for a three day visit before he heads to normandy later in the so trade front and center. worth just taking a quick moment to where we ended things in may. global stock markets shed over $2 trillion in value as the trade conflict weighed on investors sentiment. over the weekend, china published a white paper showing their view over trade. and their stance is really hardening. they blame the u.s. for where talks stand right now. so really ratcheting up there. >> and juliana, google is recovering from an outage that shut down a couple of sites. how is google bouncing back from that? >> reporter: well, google says

it would conduct an internal investigation and make improvements where necessary to prevent this from happening again. the real impact of this incident is that it shows the widespread nature of google and really the scale of the impact when they have an issue shows how ubiquitous they've become, how important they are to the tech ecosystem. just a little bit more detail on the shutdown. it was largely contained to the eastern united states and to a few hours on sunday. so could have been worse, but certainly something google is taking seriously. >> all right. thanks for your time this morning. >> probably better something like that happens on sunday versus monday. coming up, we have a look at this morning's one big thing. and coming up on "morning joe," much more on the president's arrival before touching down for his visit. >> the president of council on

welcome back, everybody. joining us from washington with a look at axios am reporter jonathan swan, the man of the hour we have been teasing for the last two hours with that incredible sit-down interview with jared kushner. congratulations, jonathan, it was a great one. >> i didn't know you were teasing me. i wouldn't have come on your show if you were teasing me. >> i get it. tv talk, my friend. >> u yo see the double. >> so jonathan, what is axios's one big thing today? >> we're leading with what i
2:56 am
thought was the most interesting news in the jared kushner interview which is that he was uncertain -- he's uncertain about whether palestinians are capable of governing themselves. at least not now. he said in the interview that he believes they should have sel self-determination. a quasi statehood where there's a territory where the military is involved and supervises them. i hate to read the tea leaves because we don't know what's in the plan. but it seems he is signaling whatever the political solution here, it's unlikely the palestinians are going to have, you know, complete freedom from israeli military and government supervision. >> you asked him about the
2:57 am
birther movement. you asked if it was racist. you asked if the muslim ban was big bigoted. he didn't say no. >> i asked him if he's seen his father do anything he would consider racist or bigoted. he gave the most on the record defense of the president on the grounds of racism. i asked two logical follow-ups. two of the things the president has done that are often raised in this conversation. his promotion of the birther theory and also the muslim ban. so i mean, that seemed to me fairly straightforward questions. >> i want to circle back to the mid-east peace plan. the last two years, he has been working on this thing.
2:58 am
you asked a really important question in how can palestinians see you as a fair peace broker considering the fact you have lent money to developing settlements in the region. and you really pressed him on that. also this thing is being reported as dead on arrival before it's even released. that it's not going to go anywhere. so talk to me more about that. >> so the challenge with interviewing jared kushner is that he doesn't provide details. he's very, very tight in terms of what he will tell you of the plan. i try to keep a big picture. one of the important questions to ask is, i thought, whether he understands why the palestinians don't trust him and try to site from their perspective. i just asked him in the context of here are all the actions the trump administration has taken whether it be slashing palestinian aid or moving the embassy or shutting down in washington. he said i'm not here to be trusted. i believe they will trust the plan on the merits. and what he also did was sort of
2:59 am
put a wedge between the palestinian people and the leadership saying that he's convinced that the palestinian people have a different view of the situation than the palestinian leaders. that the palestinian people weren't as fixated as the leaders on state hood and what he described as technocratic concerns. i asked him how he knew that given he hasn't been walking on the streets every day and he said that he's been having lots of private conversations that we don't know about. >> that's exactly what i was going to ask about whether he spent quality time with palestinians in the west bank or gaza. >> he says he's been talking to people that we don't know about. so that was his response to that question. >> okay. >> jonathan swan, always great to see you. we'll see you again on "morning joe" in a bit. and we'll be reading axios am in just a little while.
3:00 am
that does it for us on this monday morning. "morning joe" starts right now. when donald trump success there are parts of london that are no go areas, i think he's betraying a quite stupefying ignorance that makes him, frankly, unfit to hold the office of president of the united states. i would invite him to come and see the whole of london and take him around the city except that i wouldn't want to expose londoners to any unnecessary risk of meeting donald trump. >> well, things have changed since 2015 when then-london mayor boris johnson said those things. increasingly warming now to president trump. and the president is boosting the former mayor as a potential prime minister. good morning. welcome to "morning joe." i'm willie geist. joe and mika continue their honeymoon. we'll see them again on thursday live from normandy. with us today as
